hair colour to make your mouth water…
Some of the coming season hottest hair colour trends…
Ombre & Balliage colour have been a strong trend for a couple of seasons now, and due to its low maintenance is still a much requested salon look. Right now, the sexiest new way to brighten up brunette locks is by weaving in level-on-level, golden-based highlights with a few soft naturally lightened pieces. Think honey and amber-swirled, sun-drenched shade – both show-stoppingly glamorous and natural-looking (thanks to a couple of inches of roots up top). Avoid strong bleaching products that look harsh and contrived.
A perfect ‘blonde’ for a brunette is the ‘chocolate blonde’ with a strong base of chocolate brown surface layers are accented with a warm deep caramel blonde. The key is to keep the overall effect dark and swirl the caramel through – using soft lightening products like Schwarzkopf Fashion Lights 0-44 Beige
Paprika, Chilli, Cinnamon…bring a little heat to the kitchen and a glow to your hair! Red is unique, individual and always sultry! To make this shade as sumptuous and sparkly as possible weave a rich gold into the copper to bring the color to life. By adding lighter and warm tones to your red, you make the colour multi-dimensional – like looking inot an open fire
After not seeing any violet tomes for many seasons…plum-streaked strands are causing a mini revolution in the hair industry. It’s a strong bold fashion statement that can be worn light or dark – an ultraviolet mane is an eye-popping insta-look. So very ‘right now’. The violet is the perfect fashion shade for cooler toned skin that may not be so flattered by coppers and reds…from pastel lilac to deep dark plum.
Bold colours are a strong shade statement for the coming season, but the classics are classics for a reason. There is nothing more beautiful than a soft sexy, buttery blonde. If your skin tone is more golden then weave in some soft honey streaks into a creamy base. For the more cool toned complexion chose a beige or soft rosewood to bring your blonde to life
So if the dip-dyed/ombre/balliage trend shows no signs of abating, the question for the fashion forward is where to take it next. One of the hottest looks around is creating this looks with pastel colours (pink and lilac being the most widely flattering)
Not really blonde, not really brown…is being touted as the ‘new hair colour to have’… “bronde”, a subtle mix of creamy lights, butterscotch and natural dark blonde. The great news…this hue is chic on virtually all skin-tones. A great low maintenance colour that celebrates your natural slightly mouse-blonde base by adding in soft subtle highlights that have that ‘is your hair coloured look’ and ‘better than natural’ feel.
